The hidden secrets of an attempted murder are revealed through portrayal of circumstances that three different girls pass through in their life. Aswathy, a textiles shop employee, is staying with her bedridden and sick mother. She looks after the family with her meager salary. Kartika is a girl who is much loved by her parents. Her life zooms into a crisis when she comes to know of the secrets of her father’s profession. The third girl, Rohini, lives in luxury and has tremendously rich parents. But the uneasiness and unhappiness in the family atmosphere saddens her. She elopes with her poor lover. Her father engages hired hoodlums to retrieve her after beating up the lover. She decides to commit suicide. Aswathy ‘s mother comes in search of Indusekharan, Rohini’s father. Aswathy is actually an illegitimate daughter of Indusekharan. But Indusekharan decides to have Aswathy murdered. He engages Kartika’s father to commit the murder. He approaches Aswathy as the messenger of death.

This is an essay on how three different girls from three different social and economic backdrops try to cope with their life against all odds. Their crisis deepens and becomes more dangerous because of their parents' attitude. The experiences prove that lack of love and affection is the prime reason that made hell out of their lives. Lack of love and affection leads one to violence and to destruction as well. Dalamarmarangal establishes that love is the only antidote to violence.
